IN A MINUTE: Dealing with Pride
We are vulnerable to pride when we have too much or too little. Of course, what
is too much or too little is determined by our perspective. When we have too
little, we need to make ourselves bigger. We need to puff ourselves up and we
may do this by boasting of past experiences.
When we have too much we need to make ourselves even bigger and so we boast
about our future and what we will do. God calls us to walk in humility. We live in
the present, resting in the Christ who dwells in us.
Humility says the focus must not be on me, it must always be on Christ. Only in
Him can I experience the glory of walking humbly before my God.
He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you
But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God? Micah 6:8
